About this book

This is the ninth of the projected 27 volumes. It is hoped to cover 18 000 to 20 000 commemorative names in the total work covering all fields of botany.

Generic names have been used as markers through which light has been thrown on the Botanical History of the Region. Influences which have influenced a botanist's career and the resultant influences on other botanists creating a web of information. From volume two onwards attempts have been made to provide brief biographical data on associated of person honoured, wherever possible. A detailed index has been prepared Eponyms of persons which will be covered in future volumes, but found mention in the present volume, have been given.

The series will be of interest to both amateur and professional botanists and especially to students of botany as Botanical History. It has been treated as a dynamic force shaping present and future course of botanical development with a web of interlinked botanical facts, founders, promoters, students, teachers, botanical influences and revolutions.
